that people voted for obama over romney was that they were concerned about climate change and they felt he was a better candidate on climate change. we had a terrible, terrible candidate on climate change and we had a candidate on climate change who needs a lot of pressure. so i feel more optimistic than i did in 2008 because in 2008 the attitude of the environmental movement was our guy just got in and we need to support him and he's going to give us the legislation that we want and we'll take his advice and we're going to be good little soldiers and now maybe i'm being overly optimistic, but i think people learn the lesson of the past four years and people now understand that what obama needs and what we need, forget what obama needs is a real independent movement with climate change at its center and it will put pressure the entire political class and there's no waiting around for obama to do it for you. >> why would you think that the next four years of a lame duck president would be more successful from your standpoint than the first four years when he's looking for reelection? >> wel

is fair is that when you look at the folks who voted for mitt romney, 88% of them were non hispanic whites. >> non-hispanic whites. >> exactly, non-hispanic whites, and what that implies is that when you're in these conversations among conservatives sometimes when you don't have people from these other groups who can engage in these conversations you miss a great deal. and that's one reason why there are a lot of conservatives, myself included, who believe that we do have messages, ideas and strategies that would be relevant for achieving economic uplift and much else. but the problem is that when you don't have a more diverse group of people who are part of the conversation, then i think that it makes it very hard to translate that message to folks who are inclined to distrust. >> i would say that if you are going to target voters on the basis of the fact that they are african american or the fact that they are latino and try to prevent them from voting on that basis, voter suppression, that is being hostile to the interests of those groups. and if you start talking about self deportation
